Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released last December and the whole world and I are already looking forward to the next movie in the franchise STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII and finding out who Rey’s father is, why Luke Skywalker suddenly disappeared, whether Kylo Ren will go back to the Rebel side and more answers to questions raised in the latest episode.
Disney has officially ‘leaked’ some news on the next plot.
Rey took her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will continue her epic journey with Finn, Poe and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the continuing Star Wars saga, Star Wars: Episode VIII, which began principal photography at Pinewood Studios in London yesterday 15 February, 2016 .
Star Wars: Episode VIII, which is written and directed by Rian Johnson and continues the storylines introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, welcomes back cast members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis. New cast members will include Academy Award® winner Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award® nominee Laura Dern and talented newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.
The new trailer does not reveal much but it’s exciting to know that London studios are once again the HQ of the Star Wars production.
Star Wars: Episode VIII is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin and Tom Karnowski. Joining the production crew will be some of the industry’s top talent, including Steve Yedlin (Director of Photography), Bob Ducsay (Editor), Rick Heinrichs (Production Designer), Peter Swords King (Hair and Make-Up Designer), and Mary Vernieu (US Casting Director). They will be joining returning crew members Pippa Anderson (Co-Producer, VP Post Production), Neal Scanlan (Creature & Droid FX Creative Supervisor), Michael Kaplan (Costume Designer), Jamie Wilkinson (Prop Master), Chris Corbould (SFX Supervisor), Rob Inch (Stunt Coordinator), Ben Morris (VFX Supervisor), and Nina Gold (UK Casting Director).
Surely this is not much but as big Star Wars fans we love these teasers and we expect to get more from Disney from now until 15 December 2017 when Star Wars: Episode VIII is scheduled for release. I will make sure to keep you updated on all the latest Star Wars news.
If you haven’t seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens yet I highly recommend you go and see it in cinemas while it’s still running.
